"JBoss is the certified J2EE application server from JEMS (JBoss Enterprise Middleware System) and with JBoss: A Developer's Notebook you'll be able set up and manage your project in minutes. It takes a no-nonsense approach and is the practical guide to JBoss for developers. It's certainly the kind of book that you'll constantly have open on your desk, and to save time they've added in some coffee cup stains on the pages for you! Scribbled notes in the margin also add to the notebook theme, but they are actually useful asides to the main text, which makes it one of the most readable books on the subject. However, some sections might prove a bit lightweight for the coding hardcore." .NET, November 2005 "A daring format which works well, a style that lends to quick reading and progress, and an all-round enjoyable read. I look forward to other O'Reilly books in this series." - Mark Jones, news@UK, March 2006
